Next part of the transfer overview takes us to Scandinavia, and we will take a look over Swedish, Norwegian and Danish club’s transfer map.
The Swedish champion will start the CL directly int he group stage, and this is the first time in clubs history. In the last years they had to play qualification tournaments to reach the groups. The squad is very young, mostly with players who dont’ have much international experience.

The Norwegians lost the young Kurtovic and the experienced, but injured Nyberg. At the same time Gro Hammerseng is ready to start playing handball after giving birth to her baby and Anja Edin also joined the team. Tine Stange is out the hole season due to happy circumstances and Nora Mørk’s recovery is quite inpredictible.
